Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook | Federal Donuts: The (Partially) True Spectacular Story

Mon, September 25, 2017 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Lauded for bringing the Middle Eastern, North African, Mediterranean, and Eastern European influences from Solomonov’s titular Philadelphia restaurant to readers’ home kitchens, Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook’s Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking won the 2016 James Beard Book of the Year and Best International Cookbook award. Solomonov won the 2011 James Beard Award for “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic,” and his restaurants have been recognized by Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, and Travel + Leisure. At once a madcap bio of their donut mini-empire, canticle to American passion, and collection of cult-favorite recipes, Solomonov and Cook’s new book tells the “hole” story of all things “Fednuts.”

In conversation with Tom Henneman, Bob Logue, and Felicia D’Ambrosio

Moderated by culinary expert, food writer, and permanent judge on BRAVO’s Emmy-winning series Top Chef, Gail Simmons. She also makes frequent television appearances on TODAY and Good Morning America, and is the author of the 2012 memoir Talking With My Mouth Full and the forthcoming cookbook Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating. She was named the #1 Reality TV Judge in America by the New York Post.
